Liberal Wisconsin blogger Jay Bullock…

April 12th, 2008

…had a little fender-bender and will be without his car for a couple of days.

I’m glad Jay is OK.

But wondering why a good liberal wasn’t riding the bus. ;)

    Probably the route(s) he would have needed had been cut.

    I blame Scott Walker

    Maybe the route wouldn’t have been cut had Bullock done his liberal duty. Instead he wasn’t even in a car pool. He was on the neighborhood-destroying environment-killing urban-sprawl-enabling interstate system killing the planet with his carbon emissions without even a passenger in the car.

    What makes that funny is neither James nor Chris live in Milwaukee County.

    I live in Milwaukee Capper…does that make it Ok for me to make a comment? I wasn’t entirely sure what your requirements for people to make comments on topics.

    …and the route wouldn’t have been cut if more people were riding the route to begin with.

    Lets see. Jay lives near a bus route and his work is near a bus route. Maybe he decided that he didn’t like that he would have had to take 2 or more buses and a one hour commute each way.

    But with that paltry teacher salary, I am surprised that he could even afford the gas let alone insurance.

    Oh, really, Calvin? Like route 11? That was only one of the busiest. But your boy yanked it.

    But that was pretty funny too.

    Where are you numbers capper? Where is you proof? What is your source?

    Hey I am sure some of my tax dollars end up in Milwaukee Capper since Waukesha County sends more tax dollars out then we ever get back.

    Do I believe I am allowed to have an opinion hell I believe the Milwaukee County Board was trying to have Waukesha pay for part of the Milwaukee County Bus system at one time.

    See Milwaukee wants our tax dollars but not our opinions

    Clint,

    I’ll just say I heard it somewhere before. :)

    Chris,

    And Waukesha just wants our water, right?

  • 11. Chris  |  April 16th, 2008 at 6:44 am

    I live in Oconomowoc we have plenty of water we do not need your MSSD Lake Michigan poop water

    The #11 must have been reassigned because it now runs N-S contrary to your story where it runs E-W. But lets look at Vilet St which is where you said the #11 runs…

    Looking at the MCTS Map (http://www.ridemcts.com/pdf/SystemMap08.pdf) there is the Highland St bus (route 31) three blocks south of Vliet. Are you saying that the taxpayers need to cater to everyone to the point that bus riders can not be expected to walk THREE BLOCKS.

    If riders can walk those three blocks – which route would you have cut?

    Of course Walker wanted to better fund Transit Plus to help the handicap and you applauded the Board for removing the increase…

    “The County Board … removed his massive increase of Transit Plus.”

    That quote from the post you pointed to above.

  • 13. capper  |  April 16th, 2008 at 5:51 pm

    The increase was in the charge to the people using it, which would have raised the tax levy. Walker does this every stinking year until he is reminded of that fact.

    The #11 went a lot farther and serviced people, many of whom are handicapped a more direct service. Yes a lot of people are now suffering that three blocks.

  • 14. Clint  |  April 16th, 2008 at 6:17 pm

    Do they live directly on a bus route – say with in 25 feet of the stop too…

    You make no sense with this statement too…

    “The increase was in the charge to the people using it, which would have raised the tax levy.”

    If it was a ‘user’ fee how would that have raised the levy?? Also Transit Plus provides door-to-door service. Isn’t that what you are complaining about with the #11 cut??

    And since when are you against raising the levy. The only two solutions that I have seen you propose for the county budget is raising the levy and letting people out of jail.
